    I've got a group that's going. Bunch of SM's and two plated XR650R's. Going to be epic!
  2. Thanks for the info Neil, But it had been over a week and haven't heard anything from EBC so I boxed up the rotor and sent it back and bought a CRF front end on ebay instead. I'll buy another rotor for the CRF forks next time. Only next time I'll probably do the 280mm instead of the 320mm on the dirt wheels with knobs. I'll eventually get a set of 17" wheels and do the 320mm on those for street ride'n. I'm thinking the 320mm may be a little much for knobs on pavement and am worried about how sensitive/powerful the front brake will be in the dirt with such a big rotor.
  3. So I ordered an EBC 320mm Supermoto Rotor Kit (SM6001C) from Motorcycle Superstore. Order showed up looks really super sessy and once the drool was mopped up I started installation. For reference the bolts provided are two 8x35's and the bracket is labeled a 028. Right away I could see there was an issue. The OEM and provided bolts extend about 0.270" beyond the bracket and way into the path of the rotor. No problem, I've got bolts so I grabbed a set that were about a quarter inch shorter and was good to go. Put the rotor on the wheel (clips in) and went for a fit up. I figured out that the caliper sticks way inboard and the rotor not only touches the inside of the caliper but has a good 0.125" of of interference. Thought maybe there was an offset in the rotor and the clips were supposed to go out but but nope it just does not fit. Called MC superstore and they advised me to return it or to contact EBC. I really want the rotor so I called EBC and they informed me that its a known issue that the bracket in the kit for the XRR is wrong and that they'll need to send me a new one but unfortunately replacement brackets are out of stock with no ETA as to when correct ones will be coming in from the UK... Disappointed is an understatement. I'm thinking I'll give this a week and if nothing gets resolved I'll return it and ebay street bike calipers, rotor, master and have parts machined to make it all work. I cant believe EBC even sells this kit knowing the brackets are wrong. What a waste of my time and money. So be warned if you're ordering this rotor for you XRR!
